Abu Camp Location Map

Abu Camp, set in a pristine pocket of riverine forest, is situated in a vast private reserve of 180,000 hectares in the heart of the Okavango Delta, on the edge of a large lagoon with a resident school of hippo.

Abu offers the extraordinary privilege of enabling guests to interact with the resident elephant herd during their stay - watching the evening feeding, accompanying them on foot as they move through the bush, and sharing the simple joy of a frolicking youngster. These elephant encounters provide unforgettable magical moments. In addition, Abu’s one-of-a-kind Star Bed is set over the herd’s boma and guests can spend a night here, being lulled to sleep listening to the elephants’ rumbling snores below.

The camp also offers morning and afternoon game drives, night drives and nature walks to view the abundance of fauna and flora in the area. During the seasonal floods of the Okavango Delta, guests are invited to take to the waters in the mokoros, the traditional poled craft used in the Okavango Delta.

Abu’s 6 luxurious, explorer-style tents blend seamlessly into their natural surroundings. Each has a tree-shaded deck with a private plunge pool overlooking a lagoon.

Well-lit pathways link the tents with the main lounge and dining area. There is also a well-stocked library and study, and a small gym for the energetic. The well-stocked bar provides drinks and cocktails for post-safari sundowners around a camp fire while most of the meals are taken al fresco on the deck. Nearby a secluded pool enables guests to cool off and relax.

General Information For Guests

Each tent has a private viewing deck, a fan, a hair dryer, complimentary internet access, a mini bar, an outside shower, a plunge pool, a room safe, and tea/coffee making facilities.

A complimentary laundry service is available.

The main camp areas include a bar, a gym, a library, and a pool.

Credit cards are accepted.

Please be aware, the Wi-Fi connection can sometimes be slow/intermittent. Should any problems be experienced with connection to the network, please speak to a camp manager who will assist.

Morning and afternoon game drives are offered in open safari vehicles, as well as walking in the bush with an experienced guide.

Season-dependent mokoro excursions offer a taste of the more conventional Okavango, however at Abu they offer mokoro with a difference - alongside elephants splashing through the water! The traditional dugout canoes are navigated by a skilled poler and offer guests a tranquil and romantic perspective of the region.

Spending time interacting with the Abu Herd elephants is a very rewarding and memorable activity. However, you must please remember that these elephants are still essentially wild animals and, therefore, to ensure your safety, a qualified elephant handler with many years of experience will guide you through your experience. The following safety rules must be adhered to at all times:

  • Do not approach any of the elephants unless accompanied by one of the elephant handlers.
  • Do not walk in-between the elephants during interactions unless accompanied by a handler.
  • Do not feed an elephant until you have permission from an elephant handler.
  • During the feeding of the elephants, please do not bend down or kneel close to the elephants as they may lower their heads to see what you are doing and unwittingly knock you over.
  • Do not approach the elephants while you are drinking or eating, as they may be tempted to take your food or drink from you.
  • Please refrain from becoming too personal with the elephants, eg hugging or too much handling.
  • Smoking or vaping is not permitted whilst interacting with the elephants.
  • It is recommended that you wear comfortable walking shoes and a hat whilst out and about with the elephants.

The ultimate immersion experience into the sensory world of the elephant can also be experienced by sleeping out under the stars overlooking the elephant boma. This must be pre-booked.

Bush Walks / Walking Safaris

Children under 13 are not permitted on walking safaris or elephant walks.
